  1. One of the most surprisingly fun games I’ve played in some time. The sheer variety of the levels is outstanding.

    This game had potential but looks like not enough time and effort was put in it to make it good.
    Many design choices really hurts the game.
    This game had potential but looks like not enough time and effort was put in it to make it good.
    Many design choices really hurts the game. This is especially true since it was most probably marketed toward kids. For starters, dying in any level will teleport out of to the main lobby no matter the player's progress. This can be interesting in certain scenarios but this game is very unforgiving. Some jumps are hard to clear, the camera keeps getting stuck and is complicated to work with example, the double jump do not always trigger properly etc.
    Many of the level's layout are really confusing too.
    Graphically I think the game looks fine, but the sounds are atrocious.
    After 1 hour playing the clown level, when every clowns generates the same hardy arrr argg" over and over, it really can get on the nerves.
    There are many worlds and levels and sub levels, with different playstyles, which sound great, but a huge lack of polish tarnish the various experiences.
    Every character plays the same, which is a shame, because it could have added variety and uniqueness to each of them.
    There are also very odd choices. Why would currency be coins and cash strips? Ok I can understand coins, but cash, really? Why not milk bottles, or rattle-box candies?
    I liked some of the voices, and some of the jokes that shown each character personalities.
    Overall, even if it tried to be charming and funny, it is buried under a crushing difficulty and massives bugs that makes the game more frustrating more than pleasant

    What if you took a good Nicktoon like SpongeBob, Hey Arnold, Fairly Oddparents, Jimmy Neutron, Rocket Power or CatDog, a horrible show, andWhat if you took a good Nicktoon like SpongeBob, Hey Arnold, Fairly Oddparents, Jimmy Neutron, Rocket Power or CatDog, a horrible show, and make it even more horrible? You get Rugrats, a steaming pile of unfunny, unexciting, and just plain boring crap with average visuals, no witty jokes, no gross-out jokes, no smart jokes, no slapstick jokes, no innuendo jokes, just a lot of really, really, bad gags taped together to a rip-off of a bad series. I think this franchise is my worst enemy. What's wrong with Klasky Csupo? How hard is it to make a decent franchise? This show freaking sucks, The eras are the classic era, Pre-Dil era, Dil Era, Kimi era and The All Grown Up! era. All the eras suck because the Rugrats franchise makes The Simpsons franchise look bad! EXTREMELY BAD!!! If you have nothing to do on a boring day, play Spongebob Battle for Bikini Bottom instead of playing this. Expand
